This is the most beautiful song I’ve heard in some time:
“L’arlequin Assis” (Seated Harlequin), 1923, Pablo Picasso.
I’m not much of a modern art guy. I just don’t get it. I think a lot of it is ridiculous, highly pretentious, and talentless. So, I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this whimsical piece by Picasso (whose work I typically don’t get or value), during a day at Paris’ premier modern art museum, Le Centre Pompidou.
